    Is anyone else experiencing frequent slow to very slow Bladeforums web page response?

    It’s kinda bugging me, and I don’t think it’s with my ISP.

    Yeah it’s super fucked up. $30 for a membership to a forum that runs on dialup and is fucked up. I’m getting sick of it and it’s been an issue for quite some time now.

    YES - this week it has been terrible. Sometimes OK, most times just slow, BUT other times - like now at 10:50 Eastern - PONDEROUSLY slow. Takes all the fun out of BF. Not my server either - only happening with BF. Very, very tedious.

    It's been really slow for me for the past several days. It seems to me that there are a lot of scripts running in the background of this site*, and I'm not sure what they're doing but as I'm running a VPN and various ad-blockers, I wonder if that's what's slowing me down. Nearly everyone is running an ad-blocker these days, and I gotta tell you, I'm hoping that's not the issue. I'm a paid member, I think I've earned the right not to have to see any goddamn ads. I shouldn't have this site slowed down as a result. Maybe I'm completely off-base, but I don't recall ever having these issues with the old site.

    *I know, because I can see them loading in the bottom left corner of the page every time

    I noticed yesterday that I was seeing pop ups on the bottom of my screen. I’ve never seen that before in the past three years.

    Yes, I was logged in. Weird.

    Ok. Given that I’m not alone and it seems like it’s been happening a lot lately, maybe it’s time to make sure El Capitán is aware.
